Tips to Keep Your Tires Safe

Tire safety is one the most important aspects of routine car maintenance. If you are not inspecting your tires regularly you could be putting yourself and others in harms way. When it comes to tire safety you should be following these tips:

  • Check the tire pressure.This is really important and should be done when the tires are cold or three hours after being driven. You can find the recommended PSI on your door jamb.
  • Check the tread depth.Tread depth is an integral component of your tires performance. You can easily check the tread by taking a penny, with Lincoln's head pointing down, and placing it in the grooves of the tire. If you can see the top of Lincoln's head it's time for new tires.
  • Replacing your tires.When it's time to replace your tires it's best to do all four at once. But, if that's not possible it is recommended that you buy two and place them on the rear wheel.

If it's time to replace your tires or if you just need them inspected by a professional, schedule an appointment with us today.
